The recombinant human CD63 consists of 112 amino acids after removal of the signal peptide and has a predicted molecular mass of 13 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of rh CD63 is approximately 20-25 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4 Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature. Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -20℃ to -80℃ Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.
The cluster of differentiation (CD) system is commonly used as cell markers in immunophynotyping. Different kinds of cells in the immune system can be identified through the surface CD molecules which associating with the immune function of the cell. There are more than 32 CD unique clusters and subclusters have been identified. Some of the CD molecules serve as receptors or ligands important to the cell through initiating a signal cascade which then alter the behavior of the cell. Some CD proteins do not take part in cell signal process but have other functions such as cell adhesion. Cluster of differentiation 63 (CD63) is a member of the CD family and the transmembrane 4 superfamily,also known as the tetraspanin family. CD63 is a cellular surface glycoprotein characterized by the presence of four bydrophobic domains. CD63 had functions in mediating signal transduction processes and then regulate variety of cellular processes such as cell proliferation, activation and motility. It has reported that CD63 protein associated with tumor progression and served as a blood platlet activation marker and the deficiency of this protein may be associated with Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome.
